REPLAY: University of Tennessee chancellor Donde Plowman gives campus update on COVID-19

University of Tennessee chancellor Donde Plowman will be giving an update on the campus response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

UT has 28 active cases of COVID-19, and of those cases, 20 are students and 8 are employees, Plowman said during a COVID-19 update with faculty and staff. UT is also tracking how many people are self-isolating because of exposure to COVID-19. Currently, there are 155 people self-isolating. 

Of the people isolating, 13 are students living in dorms, 

Follow along with the live video stream from Plowman’s update below starting at 1:30 p.m. ET.

To help the University of Tennessee, Knoxville community comply with new mask requirements, the university is assembling 50,000 kits to distribute to students, faculty and staff.

Wellness kits include a UT mask, gaiter that can be worn around the neck or as a mask, and a health information card for each staff member and student. Student kits also include a thermometer, which students will be asked to use when they self-test each time they are on campus. Masks will be required on campus and in face-to-face classes.

Students living on campus will receive the kits when they move into dorms. Commuter students will be able to pick up their kits through a drive-thru before the semester starts. 

While it can be “awkward” to get used to social distancing guidelines and wearing a mask, Plowman said she trusts that UT students will work to keep each other safe.

“I have a lot of confidence in our students that they are going to abide by the guidelines,” Plowman said.
